Tuesday a.m. update: Work on newspaper! B began saying last fall that he wanted to publish a homeschooling newspaper, and so far two friends have gone to the trouble of contributing something for it, so perhaps we should get cranking. We read their pieces last night for inspiration, and today I'll give both kids some computer time for writing. Composition writing, that is -- they still have to do their handwriting as usual.
finished Captains Courageous as bedtime reading. Now for the next book, whatever it may be . . . time to search the shelves . . .
Wednesday: read about Filippino Lippi today in Knights of Art. Now, we happen to have a little gold-framed copy of that beautiful Madonna of his with the diaphanous headdress and a sort of rocky desert in the background, and currently (it's 11 a.m. right now) the kids are searching the house for her. She's not hidden; she's where she always was, but now they'll notice her and know who painted her original.
